    What does your Excalibur weigh? I went with a Brux 28" heavy Palma for my 6.5 build and trying to get an idea! Thanks

    14.5 lbs without rings/scope/bipod I believe. I'll hang it on a scale tomorrow for you. The stock is a very rigid/tough and heavy stock. I think the stock is 4.4 lbs.

    My research and weighing different barrel blanks led me to use the following rule of thumb for barrel blank weight planning:

    4-4.5 lbs=Light Palma
    5-5.5 lbs=Medium Palma
    6-6.5 lbs=Heavy Palma

    Of course all depends on your batch of steel, bore/groove diameters, and the slight differences in what different barrel mfgs call a Palma contour.

    Thank you for your response. I did the figures and I should come in about 13-14 lbs total. I have only seen a few other heavy Palma barrels on builds here on LRH.
